ECTAA, the esteemed European consortium for travel intermediaries, announces an exciting new venture: the first-ever Travel Payment Summit, scheduled to take place in Brussels on February 21, 2024. This groundbreaking event is set to become a pivotal moment in the travel industry, uniting top experts in the field of travel and payments.

The summit's core objective is to delve into the complexities of travel payments, a sector that has profound implications on both B2C and B2B transactions. The way payments are handled not only influences risk management strategies but also shapes the entire travel ecosystem, ultimately affecting customer experiences. In an industry where payment processes are continually evolving, understanding these dynamics is crucial.

Key elements of the Travel Payment Summit include:

  • Expert Insights: The summit will feature a roster of distinguished speakers, including representatives from Online Travel Agencies (OTAs), Travel Management Companies (TMCs), tour operators, airlines, payment companies, and EU policymakers. These industry leaders will offer their perspectives on the ever-changing landscape of travel payments.
  • In-Depth Discussions: Attendees can expect to explore a range of topics, from emerging trends in travel payments to the latest in regulations, fraud prevention, and cybersecurity risks. These discussions aim to broaden understanding and encourage innovative thinking in travel payment solutions.
  • Collaborative Environment: Central to the summit is the promotion of open dialogues and collaborative efforts among industry stakeholders. This approach is designed to not only address current challenges but also to pave the way for future advancements in travel payment methodologies.

ECTAA President, Frank Oostdam, stresses the importance of grasping the travel industry's diverse and complex nature, which is mirrored in the multifaceted world of payments. He highlights the necessity for educated discussions, leading to fair and balanced rules and regulations. Oostdam's statement reflects the summit's dedication to enhancing understanding and fostering innovation in travel payments.

This event promises to be a landmark occasion, bringing together the brightest minds in the travel and payments sectors. The Travel Payment Summit is poised to offer invaluable insights and foster collaborations that could shape the future of how we transact in travel, making it an unmissable event for industry professionals.
